Acacia
 
A great acacia, with its slender trunk
And overpoise of multitudinous leaves,
(In which a hundred fields might spill their dew
And intense verdure, yet find room enough)
Stood reconciling all the place with green.
        E. B. Browning—Aurora Leigh. Bk. VI.
  1
Light-leaved acacias, by the door,
  Stood up in balmy air,
Clusters of blossomed moonlight bore,
  And breathed a perfume rare.
        George MacDonald—Song of the Spring Nights. Pt. I.
  2
Our rocks are rough, but smiling there
Th’ acacia waves her yellow hair,
Lonely and sweet, nor loved the less
For flow’ring in a wilderness.
        Moore—Lalla Rookh. Light of the Harem.
